Charleston Holiday Festival of Lights


What started as a small display with a few lights has grown into one of the best holiday light displays in the country. Visitors will wind through the roads at beautiful James Island County Park through themed sections of brillant lights in over 750 displays with millions of twinkling lights. Guests will enjoy displays of typical Christmas scenes as well as displays that are very unique to the Charleston landscape.

Attend the Festival in Your Own Vehicle 

If you have access to a vehicle and would prefer to drive yourself, head to James Island County Park during the festival and enjoy the light display drive through the park. 2020 is a unique year. In an effort to keep visitors safe, guests must remain in their vehicles aside from using restroom facilities. Concessions will be available for guests to purchase from their vehicles. This is a Charleston Christmas tradition you don't want to miss!

Client Testimonials

  • A Charleston resident suggested a Traveling Ink concierge might be able to help me. It didn’t take long for me to realize that this was one of the best pieces of advice I could have received. My friends thought I was an organizational wizard even though I kept telling them it was Traveling Ink, not me.

    ~ Nicky H.
  • We so enjoyed our time in Charleston. Thank you for all your insight! I am recommending your services to everyone I know who is traveling to Charleston!

    ~Kathryn C.
  • Traveling Ink planned the three full days we would have in Charleston, how we would get from one place to another, places to eat, and what the costs would be. To add to the challenge, we had to change the day of one of the main attractions because rain had been predicted. They handled all the changes with out missing a step.

    ~ Harriett H.
  • These Charleston pros do a phenomenal job in any setting. Audra was our point person and is a pleasure to work with. She is laid back and can work with any request.
